“I express my deepest sympathies to the families, colleagues, and friends of these brave and dedicated aid workers, who were selflessly committed to humanitarian work in Nigeria. This horrific tragedy has left the entire humanitarian community in mourning,” said Mr. Kallon.
“Faye Mooney had been working in Nigeria for nearly two years and was known for her devotion to making a difference and countering hate speech and violence. Matthew Oguche was training not-for-profit partners in personal safety and hostile environment awareness and was passionate about helping others.”
Prior to the attack by the bandits, the two aid workers and some others who came from Lagos on a tourism tour had organized a party at the Castle located at the Hill Top in Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
The British High Commission had earlier expressed heartfelt condolence to the victims.
